Do you know how to say El Camino de Santiago in English?

In Spanish they El Camino de Santiago. Hopefully you will understand what I am talking about here.

I love travelling and visiting places. I usually don’t plan a lot. I just go for it instead. There’s nothing like meeting people you have never imagined you would meet before you do it. Although I have never traveled that route, I would say that I think I’d enjoy it.

Anyway… I’m too tired to write a great post here tonight. I’ll try to go straight to the point, otherwise, I would take a big risk of writing something completely nonsense.

Do you know how to say El Camino de Santiago in English? If you don’t know how to say that, let me educate you.

In English, we say Way of St. James. James? But where does this James come from? Well, in English, Tiago is actually James. Therefore, that is why we use Way of St. James instead of Way of Santiago or something like that. You guys are very intelligent, so I suppose you must have realized that ‘St’ stands for ‘Saint’, right?

According to Wikipedia:

The Way of St. James, St. James's Way, St. James's Path, or St. James's Trail (commonly known by its name in Spanish: El Camino de Santiago) is the name of any of the pilgrimage routes (most commonly the Camino Francés or French route) to the shrine of the apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many take up this route as a form of spiritual path or retreat, for their spiritual growth. Brazilian author Paulo Coelho wrote the book "The Diary of a Magus (Magician)" or "The Pilgrimage" based on his own experience along this way.

Pilgrims from all over the world have been following the Way of Saint James for a thousand years. The pilgrimage remains as alive today as ever, and many people come to enjoy the hospitality offered at every stage of the way and discover much more than a journey.

No pain, no glory! 

Would you like to discover Spain through the route of the Way of Saint James?
